India opens new communication platform Helpdesk Portal between the agency and applicants

India’s Office of the Controller General of Patents, Designs, and Trade Marks has introduced the Open House Helpdesk Portal in February 2024, aiming to centralize communication regarding intellectual property (IP) matters for applicants and stakeholders.

This portal aims to facilitate the resolution of issues related to patents, copyrights, designs, trademarks, geographical indications, and semiconductor integrated circuit layout designs efficiently and promptly.

Key features include a ticketing and notification system, enabling users to track and communicate about the progress of their concerns effectively.

Raja Pannir Selvam, managing attorney at Selvam & Selvam in Chennai, welcomes the launch of the Open House Helpdesk Portal.

However, he suggests additional measures to enhance its effectiveness. Selvam emphasizes the importance of providing staff support in IP offices nationwide for urgent matters and publishing designated officers’ email IDs for deadline-related issues.

He also stresses the need for accountability measures to address delays in processing legitimate requests and to combat corruption within the IP Office. Selvam views the helpdesk as a progressive initiative toward the goal of combating corruption in the IP sector.
